New submission from Serhiy Storchaka:

It is possible to add the support of most multibyte encodings to pyexpat.

There are several ways to do this:

1. Generate maps with a special script and add generated file to repository. 
After adding or updating a multibyte encoding this file should be regenerated.

2. Generate maps on fly. It requires more time for first use of the encoding, 
but allows support of arbitrary encoding which compatible with expat.
